Birthday Thursday Doors 26/5/22 with three door stories

I wish to remember the good old times in hope of more to come with photos taken by my friend who celebrates today. This post is also my contribution to the second Thursday Doors Writing Challenge: three door photos called my name and caught my eye and earned some words. Today is the birthday ofContinue reading “Birthday Thursday Doors 26/5/22 with three door stories”

Pic and a Word #299: Amber man

You say “amber” and I think of a man, a legend, Journey. Here he is twice in 100 words. Amber only turns up at the end. The first drabble – a 100-word story – is from Greece where we were together (and has been posted here with four other Greek memories), the second is fromContinue reading “Pic and a Word #299: Amber man”

Five riders and six cypresses

Today I thought of posting one of my contributions that wasn’t excepted by a past Visual Verse edition since I like it anyway. I was wondering which photos would go with six riders. I know, six cypresses, thought I, gathered 10 photos of the same cypress field through the year, and then read my pieceContinue reading “Five riders and six cypresses”

Almost 50 documentaries

This post deals with all the documentaries that I have seen in the last three years. They are varied, sensational, ground-breaking, important, fun and neatly ranked and rated. But first, I wish to celebrate my friend Crystal, my generation, who celebrates her birthday today on a trip to Boston, one day after David Bowie, ElvisContinue reading “Almost 50 documentaries”

There is no challenge with this name that I know of but it could well be. Today is just the Tuesday to show Suzanne, who celebrates Two weeks of trees, and all of you some trees in my life from my two countries. I have always wished to write a book. In fact, I stillContinue reading “Tuesday Trees”

Last photo in November

This time I knew exactly what day it was as I was strolling with bestia. The last day. So I had to pay attention to the last thing. Here it is, Monte Amiata on the right with a fresh coat of snow, untouched. Bushboy’s rules are simple:1. Post the last photo on your SD cardContinue reading “Last photo in November”

Friendly Friday: Roma in Piran

This was a brief but friendly encounter on the Slovenian coast five months ago when we went to the bus station to meet my incoming uncle. “Roma!” I heard behind me. I turned and there was the cutest terrier with the fanciest collar ready to meet bestia. Bestia, who is male if anybody still doubtsContinue reading “Friendly Friday: Roma in Piran”

Weekend Writing Prompt #235: Death by concert

I rarely decide on a new challenge since my blogging days are really full as it is, but Nope, Not Pam (last week) and Sunra Rainz prompted me to have a try at a new prompt. Each week writer Sammi Cox proposes the word and the length and off we go. This week it’s mirrorContinue reading “Weekend Writing Prompt #235: Death by concert”
